The Zeebrugge LNG terminal in Belgium again widens its destination flexibility. Last week saw the first customer load an LNG container at the facility for rail transport from the port. This lowers emissions and widens destination flexibility.
The Zeebrugge LNG terminal joined forces with several partners to combine services available in the port of Zeebrugge into an intermodal logistics chain.
Shunter Macotruck transferred the LNG container to rail at the CSP Zeebrugge terminal. Train operator Lineas then took the LNG container to its destination in Italy.
Low-emission, cost efficient, deeper into Europe
Intermodal LNG transport is an attractive proposition as it has several advantages. It reduces emissions of greenhouse gases and air pollutants while being more cost efficient and reaching new destinations across Europe.
Ample destination flexibility
The port of Zeebrugge offers particularly good connections with the four major rail hubs in Europe: Antwerp, Cologne, Rotterdam and Dourges. From there, LNG containers can be further dispatched across Europe.
